I don't read math books for fun, but I appreciate what math can do.
It took me 5 semesters to get through 2 semesters of calculus. I
got one class and one lab away from a Chemistry minor but stopped
because I couldn't learn the math fast enough.
While I like mostly non-fiction cutting-edge science books, I do
like science fiction on TV and in movies.
OkCupid says compatiple people feel the same about horror movies
believe it or not. For me, gore can really emphasize a point in a
good story. I should be like, yeah, tragically that's what would
happen. Gore for its own sake is stupid and a waste of my time. I
didn't like what little I saw in Saw or the movie Holloween. I like
characters, not dummies. Speaking of the holiday, though, this
Halloween, I finaly watched Jos Whedon's Cabin in the Woods. I did
like it as a commentary on the genre.
I'm pretty open minded about most media. I'm facinated by chick
flicks and the way girls' romantic fantasies work. I love comedies
and grew up with Jim Carrey on In Living Color. Some anime is cool.
I honestly don't watch much media on my own, but would love to know
With movies, though, if I'm not sharing the experience with someone
else, I usually don't watch them.
Foo Fighters are one of the few bands I listened to and are still
I like rock that's a little unique, usually with at least a little
bit of thought put into the lyrics. I think new country music is sn
oxymoron, but classic country sometimes told good stories. Pop
music is fine for dancing in a club. I also like ambient sometimes
and classical because I loved SNES music so much. I'm stuck with
old music and am open to hearing something new.
I finally finished Breaking Bad.
I'm still trying to figure out the ending of Battlestar
I'm currently watching:
Cosmos with Neil deGrasse Tyson
Orange is the New Black
Deus Ex, Super Mario 64,
Halo, Wave Race 64, Star Fox (SNES)--anything that's as immersive
and engaging as possible. I want to really lose my ego for a while
rather than compete.
Honestly, I do need time alone to recharge, but the reason why I
mention games is we need to like doing the same things together. I
want someone who wants to try new things regardless of how good
they are at something. I don't play as much as I used to, but I'm a
sucker for nostalgia, and love to see technology used in creative
new ways. I'm usually not very competitive; games are like an art
gallery to me. I don't play online RPGs. I prefer to play local
co-op games with other people in the same room.
Family is important to me. One of my sisters and brother-in-law
work in the videogame industry. Videogames are important to us for
creative development reasons besides just for fun. I like to share
experiences with games, but conversation around dinner is just as
important as sharing experiences.
I'm not too picky and love to try new healthy foods (except
arthropods, usually). For recipes, I often start with Dr. Andrew
Weil. For nutrition science, I like Dr. Walter Willett. I'm not on
a strict diet, but I try to buy mostly whole, raw foods at the
grocery store. On the occasion I eat out, I can be rather
